Children's Book Writing Saga Continues

Someone I met a while back during the SCBWI workshops and meetings, was published recently. Amazing writer who was in a really dedicated writing group and now she's making her way around with a book tour. I'm so excited for her and makes me more motivated to get my butt moving on writing whenever I have free time. So I'm either writing online or in a journal trying to capture some funny things that B says or some mannerisms that C does. So many great memories and so many opportunities for some fun stories.

Some thoughts on current stocks/market

Wow. We were having such a great upward trend the past few weeks and then all the Middle East challenges appeared which then effected oil prices. It's such a whirlwind of excitement and devastation. When world affairs really shake things up you see it trickle down to the stocks. Some of the highest volume change and price% change decrease include EPB at 1.75% but almost 3000% volume change. That's crazy volume change. FN and FNSR come up behind with a little over 1000% change in volume. FN had a -24.39% price%change and FNSR was -38.54% change. This is pretty hot stocks involve in some really fascinating changes for the technology sphere but slammed hard by recent political/global events. WOW! One of my vows this year was to be better about watching the overall market and track a few stocks with my old method(CANSLIM) but hoping to do more research on new methods while just holding long for more traditional holdings. I hope for more free time after the escrow closes on the house and I can refocus and maybe do more training in my stock portfolio.
